Books: just finished Foundation and Empire by Asimov. Good read.
Formalized Music by Iannis Xennakis, The Soundscape: Our Sonic
Environment and the Tuning of the World by R. Murray Schafer, and
Angels in America: Pt. 2: Perestroika by Tony Kushner were all
recent favs. Hope I get to see that play live someday. Otherwise I
read mostly fantasy novels or heady research.
Movies: American Psycho, any Studio Ghibli (Nausicaa may be my
favourite), Tough Guys Don't Dance (either brilliant or horrid).
Life has gotten a bit in the way, so I'm a tad out of date on
movies. Feel free to offer suggestions of what I should
Shows: right now, anything by Rooster Teeth. also like Archer,
Futurama, random anime, and Drunk History. Udacity videos count,
right? I mean, they are videos.
Music: I'm really into metal, contemporary classical, and, well, a
whole bunch of other stuff. Currently, Alfred Schnittke, Guillaume
de Machaut, Massive Attack, Portishead, John Hollenbeck (Large
Ensemble and smaller groups), E.S.T. (sad, I finally get to Sweden,
but it's too late to see Esbjorn Svensson), At The Gates (saw them
live in Boston, AMAZING! And got to see Anders Bjorler again. Great
guy!), Entombed, Krux, Opeth, In Flames, the fan in my room, the
sound of the subway, the sound of the train going over the tunnel
Food: Burritos of all types and sizes. Pasta dishes. Lasagna.
Cannoli. My Italian heritage comes out in my love of food.
